38 Weeks and Day 1 at home

Today is my first official day off work.  I finished last week emotionally and physically drained, yet totally blessed by all the love from the teachers and students toward me, and Baby G (our name for baby at school).  Two classes threw baby showers for me, and the teachers had a shower for me after school on Friday, my last day as a Spanish teacher (for "who knows" how long...).  

I have been really emotional lately.  It has come and gone in waves during my pregnancy.  I will hug John sometimes and just start bawling for no reason.  I almost don't want him to see me, because I have no explanation, just that I am overwhelmed with emotions.  

I am excited, nervous, and just plain overwhelmed that any day now, we could have a baby ____ (boy or girl) home with us, and we'll officially be 3, instead of two.  I feel so blessed to have had such a healthy pregnancy, and all I can do is pray and give God the control of the baby's health.  I feel the "mommy" worry creeping up on me already, and I know God has already taught me so much about His love for us through this process of becoming a mommy.  

Just a thought or two on my first day as a stay at home soon-to-be mommy.
